Project Projector: Librarian Goes High-Tech When Equipment Hits A Low

My students need an HDMI LCD projector for high-tech classroom activities.

My Students

Teaching middle school is new to me, but my students make it a true delight! They are "typical teens" in that they love to spend time with their friends (they spend even more time on their electronic devices), and they have an uncanny way of teaching me about myself during my grand attempt to teach them.

In such a short time, I have learned to listen more and ask fewer questions to meet my students' needs in ways that are most meaningful to them.

My Project

As a middle school librarian, I’m on a forward-thinking mission

I strive to stay on top of my game

Which leads me to having a futuristic vision

What do I need? What do I need to do to get it?!

I want progressive, refreshing and original associated with my name

But, in this journey called the life of a library media specialist...

Technology throws a tantrum

WiFi willfully and wantonly waxes and wanes

Oftimes, the Internet’s interrupted

Even the equipment is to blame

Though Chaos works hard to destroy our cosmic plan

And because sometimes there’s no telling when the network will be up and running again

It doesn’t mean that darkness will defeat us

There’s light that will shine upon us

Here’s something for you to better hear my cries: …---...

Yes, that’s Morse code--SOS. In Library language, it means “supplement our supplies”

Please support Project Projector by helping us secure a portable one that can be loaned to a teacher when hers unexpectedly dies
